Commercial and Residential Property owners that wish to build or expand on their property should understand it is very important to consult with a qualified construction contractor before beginning any in-depth digging or drilling. It is essential that property owners or construction managers do their homework to discover what, if any, underground water pipes or utility lines (such as gas lines, fiber optics, electric lines, phone or cable lines) might lie unseen below the surface on the property. Failure to obtain potholing services in Sydney can result in extended disruptions of utility services while repairs are made or replaced, serious health and safety hazards, and extremely expensive repairs.
Potholing is a specialized hydro-excavation technique used by construction contractors for the purpose of removing any surface hardscape such as rocks or stones (or other hard materials) and the loosening of any compacted soil. This allows for easier access to, and identification of, any underground lines, pipes and/or utilities before construction digging or drilling commences.
Failure to retain potholing services in Sydney can result in many problems, such as:
Suckers Excavations follow a step-by-step, precise process when providing pot holing services in Sydney.
Once a property has been pot holed, the property owner will have a permanent record of where underground utilities are located for that particular location. This makes it convenient for conducting future repairs or any future drilling or digging in that area of the property.
Potholing is a highly recommended, pre-construction digging precaution and practice. It is an effective, efficient, non-destructive, and safe method for safely locating buried utilities. It helps to combat expensive damages to and/or destruction of subsurface infrastructures. It is a wise safety measure for protecting properties and people.
Property owners desiring to build or install any type of new construction that may require the use of digging or drilling should always inquire about the use of pot holing services in Sydney. Remember: Never dig or drill blindly on a piece of property. To do so could place existing structures, equipment, and personnel at increased risk for expensive and/or extensive damages. Digging near underground utilities may have legal implications (check local building requirements) and could potentially place people at risk for serious injury or death.
